If it’s your first time playing a FIFA game, we suggest you read the game manuals and go through the controls guide, Doing this will help you to get familiar with FIFA 21 and if you aren't a rookie in FIFA, then you can go ahead and install FIFA 21.
Connecting to the Internet
Before you connect to FIFA 21, you need to know what can or cannot be transferred from FIFA 20 to FIFA 21. You can read the full guide here. It's important to connect your pc or console to the internet to sing-in/sign-up to EA servers for saving your FIFA 21 in-game history and records into your account. Not being connected to the internet will allow you to run the game but you won’t be able to connect and sign-in to EA servers.
Play the Intro Match
There is an introduction in the Street Football mode (Volta mode), that you will see before going to the title screen of the game. You can either skip or play it. But by playing this match you will get familiar with the new controls and skill moves in FIFA 21, especially with the Volta Football mode. This match also will rank your gameplay skill later.
After skipping/playing Voltra mode, you will be asked to sign-in or sign-up to the EA Origin server.
After reading the EA User Agreement screen, you will be asked to choose your difficulty level & controller settings which are pre-selected based on your previous experience level. You can change these settings later in the Settings menu.
Favorite Club or Team
Selecting a club or team as your favorite team will be showcased with your profile in EA Sports Football Club. After finishing this step, the system will ask you to share your account information & receive emails from EA. If you agree, your account information (email address, country, age, and EASFC activity with the organizations,etc.), and the club you select (For example Liverpool FC) will be shared and they will email you directly regarding their products, news, events, and promotions. You can disable the sharing by choosing the “No” option.
